LOSUBA ELISHA URIYA & ANTHONY DUKU PETER
Examining the effect of accounting information systems on the decision-making process was the study’s main goal. A descriptive survey research design was used for the investigation. In order to obtain primary data, important tools such as surveys and interviews were used. With a sample size of 48 respondents, the study’s target demographic included 48 of the ministries of finance and planning’s 55 employees. Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 16 and Microsoft Excel were used to examine quantitative data using frequency distribution and percentages. According to the study, there is a connection between accounting information systems and decision-making because accounting data is useful for public sector decision-making, computerized accounting data has improved management’s ability to make quick decisions, and public sector organizations’ adoption of accounting systems has an impact on the internal control system’s improvement. The study demonstrates the advantages of adopting accounting information systems because reports produced by the system are more accurate and reports for management usage may be prepared instantly because all transactions are recorded in the system. Another issue with the usage of accounting information systems, as revealed by the study, is a lack of managerial support. The possibility of hackers and viruses, ongoing worry when utilizing accounting information systems, and the requirement for specialized training programs for the firm’s workers are additional difficulties. However, these issues can be avoided by taking precautions and using protective measures. According to the study, in order to enhance accurate information and boost the efficiency of the accounting information system, the Ministry of Finance and Planning should engage qualified accountants to handle the processing of accounting information, administration, and training for accountants.
